    She has great vocals, and it’s so different hearing her sing this kind of song. I don’t think she should be directly dissing him she should take a Taylor Swift approach.

  2. Anita Alsina November 24, 2014

    Wait, did she just say he was gay on the second verse?

    • BeyRihLiyah November 24, 2014

      just like your unknown fagggg flop ghetto druggie untalented fave

      • AnitaAlsina November 24, 2014

  3. BeyBeyKing November 24, 2014

  5. AndyYonce November 24, 2014

    Why am I lowkey living for this?

  6. Tasha November 24, 2014

    Yall hear them Aaliyah runs?! She the closest thing vocally to baby girl. Love this.

  7. Don’tPhunkWithMyFerg November 24, 2014

    I really wasn’t here for this until I saw David stannning for it on twitter just now 2bh.

  8. CiciWasFinnaBeABride November 24, 2014

    Tea hasn’t been spilled like this since Christiana Brown exposed Rihanna for the wide p**** thot that she is.

    • TheElusiveLamb November 24, 2014

      Guess you forgot the tea being spilled on Ciara being a single Mother and born a man. 🙂

  9. BaddieBey November 24, 2014

    Where is Lovebird the b****, I need someone to transcribe these lyrics for me.

  10. Jay November 24, 2014

    COME ON JORDIN!!!! GIVE ME AALIYAH VOCALS!!!!!! That little run right at 1:30 or 1:31 gave me LIFE for no damn reason! I’m f****** with this though. I didn’t think she could pull it off but s*** had my heart beating lol.

    • BeyRihLiyah November 24, 2014

      you need to get your ears check she doesn’t sound like aaliyah

      • BadGyalJordin November 24, 2014

        And you need to get p**** checked. #YouHaveThePussyFunk

      • Jay November 24, 2014

        I didn’t say she sounded like Aaliyah. I said she gave me Aaliyah vocals, as in the runs & tone. Now go away.

  11. BadGyalJordin November 24, 2014

    Her Erotica era 2bh.

  12. Lana Del Bae November 24, 2014

    Emily Thorne wishes she could. #Revenge #YaassBitch

  13. VANNY November 24, 2014

    OMG!!! I think I’m gonna cry!!! I thought I was listening to Aaliyah wow!!!!! I love this!!! She sounds great

  14. IggyLongstocking November 24, 2014

    I thought David was exaggerating again but this is 1 minute 30 is life.

    • OnikaSaidJump November 24, 2014

      He only exaggerates when it comes to Onika, other than that he’s usually good when it comes to talking about new music cos I wasn’t here for this at all until I saw them tweeting back and forth.

  15. RoyalKev November 24, 2014

    Is it me or does this song sound like an Aaliyah song? It’s quite interesting on Jordin! I’d like to hear more from her now.

    • BeyRihLiyah November 24, 2014

      yeah its only you this doesn’t scream Aaliyah -_-

      • RoyalKev November 24, 2014

        …Yet a few others hear the runs… You sure you’re a stan?

      • BeyRihLiyah November 24, 2014

        yeah im sure im a stan and I don’t hear it at all

  16. metzo November 24, 2014

    She sounds like Aaliyah n kinda like Ciare. The song is ok

  17. WhenItComesToBey November 24, 2014

    Is she saying Bye Felicia or Bye Fellatio? Cos if it’s Bye Fellatio Rihanna will be SEETHING cos she has the copyright on that word.

  18. Nene November 24, 2014

    Hunty I love this song. Slay me #dump white people be like who is felicia and why people always telling her bye.

  19. Loyalty4Breezy4 November 24, 2014

    Jasondra finna clap back or nah?

    • ConfessionsofAGoodKisser November 24, 2014

      With her ass cheeks or…

      • Hannah Derulo November 24, 2014

        With Talk Dirty’s sales. GK gone double s*** stain yet sis?

  20. Casual-T November 24, 2014

    Who’da thought Jordin Sparks would ever do bitter on record? don’t think she called JD gay. In the second verse, I think she says, ” . . . that thot in the future now setting up a game, what?” It’s right at 1:59.

    • Dance4Dawn November 24, 2014

      No dear, she said “That thot in the future now setting up a gay, what?”

  21. Molly November 24, 2014

    Is it worth listening to? I really don’t use her and if this isn’t a kii then IDC!

    • BeyRihLiyah November 24, 2014

      nope just like ciara’s music its not worth listening to

      • Molly November 24, 2014

        Your ciara shade is tired.

    • BeyRihLiyah November 24, 2014

      🙂 im just playing how are you doing Mollz

      • Molly November 24, 2014

        Mhmm but I’m doing good & yourself?

      • BeyRihLiyah November 24, 2014

        im doing good

  22. Yea ok November 24, 2014

    I clicked not knowing what to expect but omg. Jordan. Yes. This path you’re going down. Keep going. I’m LIVING. U better drag him. This sound is working for her.

  23. RealNegro November 24, 2014

    Not feeling it.

  24. Jason’sHaitianTrumpet221 November 24, 2014

    Talk about bitter.

  25. ~The Arcade~ November 24, 2014

    Even when she uses curse words, it doesn’t seem believable. I have a feeling 75% of this mixtape, are gonna consist of Drake records… So hold on, for track no.3 she’ll probably sing over “Marvins room” or “take care”

  27. Molly November 24, 2014

    Seeing people comparing her voice too Aaliyahs y’all should stop.

    • HistoRih November 24, 2014

      Has Future paid his child support this month honey?

    • Tasha November 24, 2014

      Yall so called “fans” can quickly call someone out and notice when someone looks like Aaliyah (hairstyle, the way they’re dressed, etc), but cant notice when someone sounds like her…. Are yall really fans? True fans study Aaliyah and know her technique and vocal style. Jordin clearly did Aaliyah esque vocal runs and channeled her. If you can’t hear that, you ain’t no fan.

      • BeyRihLiyah November 24, 2014

        biiiitch shut your fat ghetto ass up

  28. RobMack November 24, 2014

    I like it, she could always sing, just needed a little edge to her. This song has some hardness to it and the quick wordplay singing doesn’t rely on her powerful vocals as much but lays back and allows you to just get a taste of a strong singer beneath a good beat. A worthy offering but consistent follow ups are needed in order to solidify a true change in direction and believability as a modern woman with real emotion and character.

  29. NickiBeenBad November 24, 2014

    Come through Hip Hop Queen.

    “that thot in your feature now setting up a game, what? she dying to be insta famous, asking for the things that you gave me”

  39. Sherry November 24, 2014

    I do hear a little bit of Aaliyah and Brandy in her runs. Let it off ya chest Jordin I’m not even mad! Her flow didn’t match the beat at some parts, but not bad–not bad at all.

  40. KING B November 24, 2014

    Hey Everyone, I am an aspiring artist and I love to rap, and sing. I would greatly appreciate it if you guys would check out my freestyle to Multiply by A$AP Rocky. Thanks

  41. Umm November 24, 2014

    Eh i love her but not impressed. I need to hear some sangin from her

  42. TheElusiveLamb November 24, 2014

    Hmm ok. Not bad.

  43. You Stupid November 24, 2014

    YAAAAASSSSS!!! Who ever would sit here and say those aren’t Babygirl runs… Is crazy

  44. Mark111 November 25, 2014

    OMG, I hear Aaliyah here and there. It’s the vocal style, Aaliyah mastered the soft rich tone that had bass in. I can’t explain it, but it’s during her chorus and the runs. Listen to Are You Feeling Me and you’ll get what I’m saying. Only one other girl I knew that had this tone was Tyra B on I’m Still In Love.
